issues for the united states is how do we react to this? because we've got our fifth fleet stationed in bahrain. bahrain has been a friend of the united states for last several many decades and there is this tension between our commitment to human rights, our commitment to our democratic principles on the one hand which are vitally important for us but our real world, concrete interests insuring the flow of oil through the straits of hormuz which you covered. insuring that we have stable relations and influence with governments in the region like saudi arabia who have an in this. melissa: i want to talk about the video we're looking at here. he is trying to make the case, he said this repeatedly and very open about it when were doing the interview and didn't shy away from the question. when you have people in the streets throwing molotov cocktails you are putting in jeopardy the safety of the rest of our citizens. he makes it sounds like you have a few people causing trouble the other side would say these are a few people standing up for democracy that want a voice and this is a mona
right here in the united states. she joins us live tonight from bahrain. melissa, great to see you, safe and sound. you spent the night on the uss enterprise, the crown jewel of the navy's fifth fleet. stationed in bahrain where the iran threatened to shut down. this is a vessel with tremendous amount of history. tell us about it. >> oh, absolutely. it has been on the water for 51 years. it was parked off cuba during the cuban missile crisis. right now it is patrolling the arabian sea as you said, keeping the strait of hormuz open. rear admiral walter carter talked to us exclusive and we asked him how leaders in the area feel about iran's threat to shut down the strait of hormuz and here's what he had to say. >> like the entire global economy. they're very concerned about that and our job here is to make sure that freedom of navigation occurs through that very critical strait. it is well-known the amount of trade and commerce that goes through there. so just take a look what goes through there. liquified natural gas, huge product that comes out of the country of qatar. oil products impor
of the united states and some of the biggest names in business are here to join me. first, the politics of oil. america's energy independence is a pivotal issue in the presidential campaign. how could the election's outcome impact the industry and houston's economy? i will ask richard kinder, chairman and ceo of oil and gas pipeline giant kinder morgan. >>> bhp billiton drilling deep into texas shale. the mining company is spending billions to cement its foothold. chief executive mike yeager is here to explain how the booming energy source is transforming his entire business. the race is on to find the next big gusher. where will the top energy investors see explosive new profits? i will have joe foster. even when they say eight it's not, it is always about money. melissa: all right the first let's take a look at the day's market headlines while we look at that gorgeous campus. a slate of economic reports caused stocks to end the day mixed. weak data out of china and higher than expected u.s. jobless claims spooked investors early but stocks came off insession lows. the dow closed up 18 points
intimidate american economic interests, companies, multinational companies be so that the united states would react in their favor. melissa: so they were what? leave these countries, try and it includes american policy? when they get these multinational companies to do? >> look at the first-aid, what's happening right now. the united states has to for security reasons withdrawal. would draw people from those countries. that would leave the companies alone, and there would have protection, coordination with the embassies. this is where a second wave is possible that would hit those companies with the interests or their allies. my concern would be if the wrong moves in, so far it hasn't, but if they move in on the eastern side of the mediterranean and the gulf area then we have a war crisis. melissa: what's interesting is we have seen businesses get attacked. we're focus of most corn on the protest, but i don't think that's been as much focus on what's going on with international companies. this could have a big economic impact. >> welcome before the embassies and consulates were attacked we we
in flames by what has been happening with that film and the united states and the protest of there. >> thank you for having me on. as the russian said some one time, double leaving coincidence come rent. of comparisons between what is happening here and the peninsula's decisions, is under attack. let's not kid ourselves. the events in the middle east, so it does appear to be coordinated. it does appear to be the same kind of attack. it is a religion al service attack. it is more than a glider attack. isn't doing as much damage as is causing inconvenience and reputation hits for a lot of the major firms right now, but there is no doubt that there is a connection. whether the group that is claiming credit for it is the whether it is -- adam: let me interrupt you. flashpoint partners just put out a press release, and they're saying that saudi anonymous one is taking plan for the attack on the new york stock exchange, it does that seem to have disrupted anything. we don't know who is taking clamper what is happening at j.p. i'm a customer. you can't get online. the denial of service, they just l
in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. here in the united states, countless publications provoke offense. like me, the majority of americans are christian and yet we do not plan blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. >> watched that and was ripping my hair out. do we really think that was about the movie. here he is legitimatizing that point of view saying all this had to do with the movie. first of all do you believe that the attacks on the ambassador were -- >> president obama were a law professor he would describe that as a red herring that is totally irrelevant concern that takes the obama administration kind of off the hook for how they missed the ba on this. this was a planned attack. melissa: right. >> he had u.n. ambassador on a week and a half ago saying this was spontaneous attack that is ridiculous statement. these were grenades that were propelled in a massive way. these were massive arms. people don't bring these things to, to spontaneous demonstrations. now all this evidence is coming out that the ambassador himself had, had a dia
, the united states will stand along with our allies and put a time frame, a time limit on this and really force iranian compliance with the iaea regulations or the consequences would be really, detrimental for iran and the economy and perhaps take a military course. melissa: yeah, it feels like we're not having impact. that's why we're talking about all these things tonight. thank you very much ambassador, for coming on. >> thank you very much. melissa: hoards of demonstrators violently taking to the streets of greece and spain to protest new austerity measures. governments are trying to take one step forward to solve the continent's debt crisis but some citizens seemed determine to take two steps back. with the u.s. trying to solve its own looming debt crisis could we see this kind of turmoil break out here? steve moore from "the wall street journal" joins me with more on this. we watch these protests going on in the streets and the first thing on my mind is that it seems like things are getting worse instead of better across europe and i thought that we had sort of solved, at least part
that israel is in a position whereby no red line by the international community, by the united states, israel may have to do what it has to do and then make the phone calls. melissa: yeah. we were all sort of stunned in the newsroom and stood up and looked at this because he is holding up this giant whiteboard to make his point. what do you think the reaction will be now? >> well the reaction of course on behalf of the iranian regime and their allies, that would be the syrian regime, hezbollah in lebanon, some politicians in iraq, hamas maybe, they could attack the prime minister of israel and accuse him of escalation. reality others in the region, such as saudies, kuwaities, threatened by the iranians have someone speaking on their behalf but not a arab leader, the leader of israel. melissa: i was in the middle east recently and leaders are definitely nervous. they see this as almost an inevitable conclusion at this point. do you think 70% to a bomb is about where they are? do you think it is even further than that? >> i think iranians are working on two tracks. one is slowly gradually to ge
one. number two the president needs to talk about the relationship between the united states and israel. when he says that israel, that the united states always has their back on all issues what does that specifically mean? i think, three, the president owes it to the people of this country to know what his foreign policy is. the president in 2008 laid out a foreign policy that he would hit reset button with russia. i believe that has failed. melissa: yeah. >> he said he would have negotiations with iran. that has clearly failed. iran is closer to nuclear weapon, melissa, than ever before. he has said that the arab world would have a much better relationship because he is the president. that's not the case when you have these sort of concerted organized abuses going on. melissa: right. start with the first one, saying the war on terror is still ongoing. do you think that it is realistic that he would do that give that he sort of spiked the football with the death of osama bin laden saying that it was almost over? do you think that he is really going to acknowledge that is sti
discoverries, make it a bigger play for the united states of america to reduce imports. the president said last week in his acceptance speech, if we follow his plan we will be off imports by 2020. that is a nonsense statement. there is nothing in the president's plan that would bring us anywhere close unless we reduce demand by continued recession and use ever less oil which is one of the reasons that we have changed the import relationship, reduced demand because people can't afford to buy oil in this day and age at these prices. so they are reducing demand. but in terms of increasing production --. melissa: your bottom line argument is that we shouldn't step off the gas in other development areas just because we think that all of this other supply is coming on board? is there evidence that is what is going on? >> no. we've been emphasizing the shale plays because it is private land, with state permits. you know, drilling on federal lands is down 40% over the last three years. we have decreased our investments under federal jurisdiction while we have increased private and state jurisdictional
, in the united states? plus the corporation is falling behind because their tax rates are going up. their businesses will go away. they will lose competitiveness. people will move, as you have just said. this is a disaster. there are things you can't see. you know, so let's say you're a surgeon and you don't want to pay 75% tax rate. so what you do, you cancel surgeries and go paint your own house, which takes away business from the painter. and the whole economy becomes inefficient. that is why, this is going to be a disaster for france. the whole world learned these kind of tax rates are highly unproductive. melissa: i don't know. they will have to watch closely to really learn that lesson because i'm not sure everybody takes that away. one of the biggest points whenever you do something like this it never brings in revenue they think it will going to. they think this will recoup 30 billion euro or $39 billion and help close the deficit next year. if you look at example. this was tried in oregon in 2010. it didn't bring the revenue they thought. tried the same experiment in illin
and the united states. work with those people and have the keystone pipeline and, but, the missing link, in this whole thing is that we've never had an energy plan in america. melissa: you are right about that. >> we have no energy plan. melissa: you're right about all that. that is great setup because we have the ceo transcanada coming up. boone pickens thanks for coming on the show tonight. we really appreciate your time. >> sure. melissa: transcanada submit as new route for the keystone xl pipeline. can the plan avoid getting quashed by the white house? boone talked about how much we need this. i will ask transcanada's ceo in a first on fox interview coming up next. >>> plus, ecb mario draghi sends bulls on a tear. look at that. is his debt crisis fix a short term high for investors? piles of money printed by the e.u. coming up. ♪ . [ thunder crashes ] [ female announcer ] some people like to pretend a flood could never happen to them. and that their homeowners insurance protects them. [ thunder crashes ] it doesn't. stop pretending. only flood insurance covers floods. ♪ visit fl
diplomats in the region is to represent the united states, to advance business and security interests. they will be out there doing that, regardless of the level of threat. they will just be more careful. melissa: we had a guest on yesterday saying international companies will pull back, having their people out in regions where they are receiving these threats. it seems like it is the smart thing to do. now you have al qaeda saying that they are focusing on threatening companies internationally as well and their personnel. do you think this poses a threat to international business, and in fact the global economy? >> first of all, not to the global economy. in the terms of american business interests, each company must, based upon its own legal and insurance policies, take care with its own employees, particularly when there are threats out there like that. each company has its own polly, melissa. again, i do not think this will have to long-term, significant impact we can measure on either the american business posture in the middle east or on the global economy. melissa: you are some
and the united states. libya, for example, has brought its oil industry back online. it is pumping more than i believe a million barrels a day. these are essential to the oil markets internationally and to the price of gas here in the united states. so it's not just oil. it's also international security. it is future of israel. it is our long-term interests in the middle east. melissa: is it working? i hear what you're saying and you look at pictures and see what happens, you have to ask yourself is it working? >> of course those of us who have been out there, we're shocked and we're obviously very, very saddened by these events and our first reaction of one, gee, why does this happen? what we have to do is first of all see what the governments will do in response to these attacks. they have an absolute responsibility to protect embassies and diplomatic establishments. this was not done at all in the case of egypt. the libyans tried. there was a major gunbattle with terrorists involved. we have to see in days ahead how these governments react. i think we should withold judgment on the next ste
years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. melissa: we've got breaking news right now. adam shapiro in the newsroom with it. adam. >> this is the latest on emergency landing that an aircraft carrying ann romney, the wife of presidential candidate mitt romney along with five staffers, two secret service agents and the pilots on board the plane made an emergency landing just outside of denver. apparently is a challenger aircraft. it seats 10, not including the pilot and copilot. there was smoke in the cabin 10 minutes before the emergency landing in denver. ann romney's spokesperson, sarah hayley said the smoke stung their eyes. it appears to come from a electrical cause. but that is not confirmed. everybody is reportedly fiber-optic according to fox news channel's carl cameron, but again, it was a flight from omaha to louisiana. 10 people o

countries ended up with. they keep on running debt and our dollar gets devaluated. the u.s., the united states gets deevaluated. this is wrong. they have got to bring up what are we going to do, what is your administration going to do? but more important, i haven't heard anything new. what are going to do to lower the deficit? what will you do to create more jobs? what will you do to be more accountable for that? if they don't mention that, america becomes like europe and none of us in america want that. none of us want that. melissa: from the reports i've been hearing about the democratic national convention and speech i'm watching they're embracing their spendingselves. they feel very good about this. you heard neil cavuto talk about this. spending makes sense. this is what you do as a government. isn't that your impression being there? >> well, priority, i love you out there, okay. that is a priority. but what is very important that we love each other as this, they're not addressing it. america that is very important. we don't want to go bankrupt. if bankrupt happens, there is less s
